Students read and listen to a recording of the narrative Poem, “The Cremation of Sam McGee”, by Robert W. Service .
Students analyze the poem for figurative language and determine the meaning behind the figurative language and explain the impact it has on the reader.
Scaffolding: I have left several blanks throughout the document for students to fill in. Some of the blanks are for students to
Provide the line from the poem with a particular use of figurative language
Identify the type of figurative language
Explain the meaning and/or impact on the reader
Feel free to use this resource in a different way and share how you use it! Thank you!
Differentiation: Allow students to work together OR for advanced students, provide this as an assessment after reviewing figurative language.
